How To Do Stealth Kills in Resident Evil 4 Remake

Resident Evil 4 Remake Sneak attack

Resident Evil 4 Remake is not always about running and gunning your way around as this can sometimes get you in tough situations.

Avoiding conflicts at first and taking a few enemies out can help you get the upper hand as you reposition yourself for a fight.

Luckily, there is a stealth mechanic in Resident Evil 4 Remake that players can use to safely get around enemies who are unaware of your presence.

How To Sneak?

To sneak in Resident Evil 4 Remake, you simply need to crouch and this will slow you down a bit but will not alert enemies when you walk around them.

This works as long as they do not directly see you or if none of them are alerted of your presence because if they already spot you, they will start attacking.

You can sneak around the area and pick up items as well before fighting enemies to stock up on ammo and other supplies.

Another Stealth feature in the game is to assassinate unaware enemies, which Leon can do by sneaking up to them and stabbing them with a knife.

You will need any type of knife for this to be done and a successful stealth kill will consume a bit of its durability once you stab them.

To do a stealth kill, you will need to sneak up on an enemy and approach them from behind and press the attack button when prompted.


Enemies sometimes take a longer time to detect you even if you have already done things that may have alerted them such as running past them or jumping through a window.

This gives you a small amount of time before you can do stealth kills or run to a safe location before fighting them straight on.

You will usually alert enemies when you are seen in their line of sight or are running, shooting, breaking objects, and attacking them.

Given that Leon is a trained agent, he is more than capable of everything an assassin or spy can do, which makes it good that they included a stealth feature.

Making use of the stealth in Resident Evil 4 Remake is a good way to scout areas and plan out how you are going to go about in certain chapters.

If you are out of ammunition, it might be best to sort of stealth to get ready before diving into a swarm of enemies.
